(North Bergen—March 20, 2015) The High Tech National Honor Society (NHS) sponsored a Valentine’s Day card designing project, which it opened to the entire student body of High Tech, announced Dr. Joseph Giammarella, Principal of High Tech High School.
During free periods, students designed cards in the mall area and cafeteria in a spirit of goodwill that resulted in more than 300 cards produced and distributed to Alaris Health Center in Bayonne and Newark Beth Israel Medical Center.
“The NHS members wanted to spread the spirit to those in our community who might not have been remembered on Valentine’s Day,” says Joan Marie Bellotti, moderator for the High Tech chapter of NHS.
